Hi all, just discovered this & wanted to introduce myself.
I’m Simon, my wife is Mandy.
Mandy underwent a craniotomy to clip an Unruptured bilobed aneurysm on her left middle cerebral artery on the 15th May of this year - it was a difficult surgery & she suffered a lacuner stroke 2 days post op developing dysphasia progressing to aphasia.
A further 3 days on and her speech slowly returned.
Mandy had her post op clinic appointment on the 9th July where she complained of a fair bit of tenderness to the Scar & surrounding area along with a little clear discharge from parts of the scar.
A swab revealed some bugs (doctors words)
Mandy is due back at hospital on the 18th July in the day surgery unit for them to take a closer look.
This week Mandy has suffered 1 strong headache with vomiting and has complained of pain in her jaw on the opposite side of her operation.
She is not sleeping very well and has complained of feeling sick on one other occasion.
Has anyone else experienced similar?
My anxiety is peaking with worry.
